A few questions for the ESDC's phantom community information session

So it looks like no additional community information session will be held, as seemingly promised, before the Monday deadline for comment to the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) on the 2009 Modified General Project Plan.

But what if, by some miracle, a session is held either first thing Monday morning or the deadline is extended?

Here are just a few questions:
  • Despite what Forest City Ratner executive Mary Anne Gilmartin said, does the ESDC believe there would be sufficient housing bonds for the anticipated ten-year project buildout?
  • How long would it take to build the arena and how long would the eminent domain process take before construction could begin?
  • If Forest City Ratner has seen new renderings of the arena and arena block, what's keeping them from sharing them publicly?
  • How long will stages 2&3 of the Carlton Avenue Bridge reconstruction project take to complete?
